Mammoth Lakes Community Update: February 24, 2023

Be Prepared for Heavy Snow and Blizzard Conditions 

  • National Weather Service Reno has issued a Winter Storm Warning and Avalanche Warning for Mono County and the Town of Mammoth Lakes through 4:00am Sunday, February 26, 2023. 
  • Total snow accumulations of 10 to 30 inches, except 2 to 4 feet above 7,000 feet, with gusting winds as high as 75 mph in the Sierra with 50 mph in valley locations is forecast. There’s still a lot of moisture on radar that is working in from the west, probably slower than originally forecast. Still looking at moderate to heavy snowfall rates through this evening, becoming more light to occasionally moderate during the day Saturday. Still a pretty good bet for an additional 8-14″ through this evening (in town 7900′ elevation) with another 4-8″ overnight into tomorrow. Just taking a little longer. Winds will blow the snow around a lot, drifting, low visibility.
  • Travel during the winter storm could be very difficult to impossible. Travel along US 395 and Highway 6 through Mono County and points south could be greatly impacted due to blowing snow and near whiteout conditions.
  • All vehicles, including those with four-wheel drive or snow tires, should carry chains when traveling in snowy weather. Highway/Road signs and the QuickMap site will indicate when chains are required, and drivers must stop and install chains.
